This is a very large primary school in a culturally diverse urban area. It provides for children in the EYFS in a Nursery, and in either two or three Reception classes, depending on the time of year. A large majority of pupils are from ethnic minority heritages, with no particular group predominating. A high proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language, with many still at an early stage of learning the language. A large number of pupils start or leave the school other than at the usual times. An increasing proportion of those who start during Key Stage 2 are at the early stages of learning English. Many are refugees or asylum seekers, and some have little previous experience of school. Free school meal figures are high. The school recently entered a 'hard federation' with the nearby secondary school, and the two schools have the same governing body. A unit to support pupils with hearing impairment is based in the school. There is a breakfast club catering for 22 pupils, run by the governing body. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities (LDD) is above average, including those with statements of special educational need. Their most common difficulties are with speech, language and communication; behavioural, emotional and social problems; or they have moderate learning difficulties.
